Is OnLive Violating Microsoft's Licensing Agreements?

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Though you might expect a company whose business model is based around sharing installations of Windows via the web to have thought about licensing... you'd be wrong. Microsoft is claiming that OnLive — the company intent on delivering Windows to your iPad — violates its Windows 7 licensing agreements.

Writing on Microsoft's Volume Licensing blog, Joe Matz, VP of worldwide licensing, said the company is "actively engaged with OnLive" in an attempt to bring them "into a properly licensed scenario." While OnLive declined to comment when approached by ZDNet, it certainly sounds like Microsoft won't let the problem lie. [Microsoft via ZDNet]
